Health Ministry officials’ burn files to cover the Sh 5 billion scandal - MURAGURI in the mixEditor's Choice, Forum and discussion 00:02
Saturday, 29 October 2016 - Senior Health Ministry officials have allegedly burnt files as part of a cover up of the Sh 5 billion scandal.
On Tuesday, a local daily exposed massive looting of Sh 5 billion from the Ministry where the scandal involved manipulation of the Integrated Financial Management System (IFMIS), diversion of funds and double payment of goods.
Following the expose, senior Health Ministry officials were busy burning and hiding files on Thursday to cover up their misdeeds.
A casual labourer who works at the Ministry’s headquarters said senior officials led by Health Principal Secretary, Dr Nicholas Muraguri, were busy transferring files from the Ministry’s headquarters to an unknown place.
The burning and transfer of files came a day before Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission (EACC) sleuths stormed Afya House on Friday.
After the raid, EACC deputy CEO, Michael Mubea, said the anti graft body has formed a special task force that will investigate the Sh 5 billion scandal.
